Purim: Its Observance And Significance

by Rabbi Avie Gold

A bonanza of Purim treats, this book will add new and deeper meaning and understanding to everyone's celebration of this festive holiday.

A holiday of delirious joy, of friendship, of charity, of brotherhood, of rededication to the ideals of Judaism - all of these are Purim. It is the first festival marking a miracle that came about after destruction and exile, at a time when Jews wondered if they were still bound by the ancient covenant with the Creator Who had cast them out. Then came the hidden miracle of Purim, proving that the destiny of Israel always remains valid - even when it seems to be hiding in the shadows of history.

This book, part of the popular ArtScroll Holiday Series, draws together several elements of the day's history, underlying meaning, and observances. It is a selection from many sources, each of its sections filled with information and inspiration that, in combination, will add flavor to the day for any reader.

Black, White and Jewish: Autobiography of a Shifting Self
by Rebecca Walker
Riverhead Books; ISBN: 1573221694

When Mel Leventhal married Alice Walker during the civil rights movement in the late 1960s, his mother declared him dead and did not reconcile until after the birth of her first grandchild. After Mel and Alice divorced, their daughter, Rebecca, alternated homes every two years, spending time in Mississippi, Brooklyn, San Francisco's Haight Ashbury, Washington, D.C., the Bronx, and suburban Westchester. With each new place came a new identity and desperate attempts to fit in: as white or black, as Puerto Rican or Jewish, as a party girl, a fighter, or a lover. Confused, and mostly alone, she turned to sex, drugs, books, and a cast of dangerous and thrilling characters.
